We are only a couple weeks away from one of my favorite holidays – Halloween. So, to get in the spirit, for the next couple weeks, I will be introducing some scary good cocktails you can easily put together for your friends.
I will start off by introducing to you a very talented bartender I have the privilege of working with. She will have center stage this week, as I introduce cocktails that she was kind enough to share with the staff and customers at Twiisted Sushi Grill and Bar, where I am the bar manager. As you will see as we go through the week, Crissa is very creative. Plus, it gives me a few days off from trying to figure out to put up on here.
The first one of Crissa’s I am introducing is an easy build, flavored with grape and cranberry flavors. Bravo, Mrs. Vallen!
Have a great Monday and a solid and productive week! Cheers!
2 oz. Grape Vodka
Splash of Cranberry Juice
Method: Build this in a highball glass by pouring the first three ingredients to measure. Top off with soda water. Stir. Add a lime wedge on the rim of the glass for garnish.
